they came from government research grants. we have the department of defense which always wanted us to be at the very cutting edge of technology. we had the internet was originally a way for government scientist to communicate with each other. clearly that basis is sort of the big reason silicon valley got started and we sort of had this critical mass and created the fertile ground and on the job training and kind of the kind of interaction that helped us. >> guest: i would say it's possible. i'm skeptical of it. and skeptical of it for two reasons. when you think about the internet, think about all the commercialization of it that has occurred since 1992 or three when they came up with the browsers. almost all that has been done by private enterprise to very little of it i think was done by the government. and so the second is i don't know about you but when i think back to what i learned in school, all learning occurs on the job. it's highly specialized. and that you really learn by doing over the course of your career very little of which are taking away from school. that's the t

behind us the same words to pray the trooper said troopers our defense. these men put on their death mask and came at us with sticks trembling as with horses and releasing tear-gas. i was hit in the head by a trooper with a stick, had a concussion and i thought i was going to die. i thought i saw death. 47 years later i don't recall how i don't know how i made it past that bridge but i do remember in that little church more than 2,000 people were trying to get in to protest what had happened on the bridge and someone said something to the audience. i stood up and i said i don't understand how president johnson can't send troops to vietnam and cannot send troops to selma alabama to protect people whose only desire is to get ready to register to vote, to march from selma to montgomery. 17 of us were hurt and admitted to a local hospital. the next day dr. martin luther king jr. came to selma to visit with us and he said that he asked religious leaders to come. more than a thousand priests, rabbis came and walked across the bridge.

from that, and it was deepened by the warren court's rulings in defense of the speech and association rights of communists which eisenhower also objected to strongly. at the end of his career or nearing the end of his career, warren did try to get cute with his resignation from the court. after bobby kennedy was killed in los angeles, i think warren saw quite cleary with the experience -- clearly with the experienced political eye that he did have that nixon was the likely nominee and likely to be the next president. there is no person in warren's professional life who he detested more than richard nixon. and seeing that that was about to happen or seeing that that could happen, e tried to resign -- he submitted his resignation and made it contingent, he said he would leave the court upon the confirmation of his successor. today, by the way, that is not so unorthodox. sandra day o'connor did the same thing in her resignation from the court. but at the time johnson was a badly-weaken president, he was not seeking re-election, the vietnam war was upon the country. it was the summer of '

ask questions. >> thank you for being here. department of defense. my question is the strategic rebalancing to asia. is this an attempt to contain china and given the geographic problems china has being surrounded by numerous ethnic states and not to mention india and hostile southeast asian powers the strategic rebalancing will be effective? >> i was in beijing recently and in beijing there are thousands of american businessmen and students and chinese students. you can't use the word containment because it has a cold war vintage that doesn't capture the complexity of the relationship between the united states and china. speaking about the event i think it was a natural occurrence that would have happened no matter what it was called for term because we are concluding two ground wars in one part of the world. in previous decades and centuries when the u.s. concluded ground engage in this often retreated into semi isolation. this was true after world war ii with the korean war that gave harry truman the political space he needed to send troops back to europe. we didn't want to t
